Holy Week Processions in Granada: A Journey of Faith

Holy Week in Granada is experienced in the streets. From Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday, Granada offers a packed agenda of events that allow locals and visitors alike to be part of this tradition. Palm Sunday begins with the procession of La Borriquilla, which departs from the Parish Church of San Andrés Apóstol, symbolizing Jesus’ triumphal entry into Jerusalem. It is followed by important processions such as the Last Supper, Las Maravillas, El Despojado, and the Captive, each narrating different episodes of the Passion of Christ.

Key Dates and Emblematic Moments

The dates of Holy Week vary each year, aligning with the first full moon after the spring equinox. In 2024, Granada will be steeped in faith and tradition from March 24th to 31st, with Maundy Thursday and Good Friday falling on March 28th and 29th, respectively.

This year, more than two thousand costaleros will carry fifty-eight floats through the main arteries of Granada, accompanied by a vast congregation of brotherhood members and women. Good Friday stands out as the day with the highest number of processions, while Holy Saturday is dedicated exclusively to the procession of Santa María de la Alhambra.

From the dawn of Palm Sunday, with the emblematic “Borriquilla”, to the joy of Easter Sunday, each day of Holy Week in Granada is an opportunity to experience moments of deep devotion and beauty.

Each float, from the Holy Christ of Consolation and the Most Holy Mary of Sacromonte to Santa María de la Alhambra, emerges not only as a manifestation of faith but also as a cultural and historical work of art, rooted in the heart of Granada and its traditions.

Palm Sunday

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week in Granada with the procession of the Brotherhood of the Blessed Sacrament and Brotherhood of Penitents of Our Father Jesus Stripped of His Garments, Most Holy Mary of the Sweet Name, and Saint John the Evangelist, which will depart from the Parish Church of San Emilio with two floats. These are the Brotherhoods that will pass through Plaza Trinidad (front of the Hotel), allowing guests of Seda Club Hotel to experience up close the entire spectacle of devotion, art, and culture while enjoying their stay in the heart of the city.
